CFP: Approaches to Ancient Medicine

Seen on the Classicists list (please direct any queries to the folks mentioned in the item and not to rogueclassicism):


Continuing the annual series held at Newcastle, Reading and Cardiff since 2000, the 2011 "Approaches to Ancient Medicine" conference will be held at the University of Exeter on Monday and Tuesday 22-23 August 2011, hosted jointly by the Centre for Medical History and the Department of Classics and Ancient History.

If you are interested in giving a paper at the conference, please send an abstract of up to 200 words to Robert Leigh ral212 AT by 28 February 2011 at the latest. Papers should be of 20 minutes duration. In addition to papers relating to the classical Greek and Roman period we welcome proposals relating to medicine in late antiquity, to the transmission of classical medicine including via the Syriac/Arabic traditions and to its reception at all periods up to the early modern.

It is hoped that the programme will be finalised in late March 2011.

Please direct any enquiries to Robert Leigh (ral212 AT
